The largest water fountains in the world are in Dubai and they are called The Palm Fountain. You will definitely be very impressed when you see them for the first time.
The Palm Fountain in Dubai
There are the well-known water fountains Dubai Fountains which are located at the Burj Khalifa and the Dubai Mall. Furthermore, it is one of the most popular free Dubai attractions that inspire thousands of visitors every evening. But the emirate of Dubai is known for its records and you always want to have the biggest and the best there.
So there is now an increase and there are more water fountains that are even higher. Incidentally, The Palm Fountain now holds the new record as the “largest and tallest water fountain in the world”. In this post, you can find out everything about it if you want to look at them. It is certainly very practical if you have booked a hotel on The Palm Jumeirah and then you can stop by there every evening if you want.
First, you should find out about the exact location of The Palm Fountain and how you can reach it. The water fountains are located on the artificial island The Palm Jumeirah. In principle, you can say between the Atlantis The Palm Hotel and The Pointe Dubai. In between, there is a small lake and there is also the ideal location for such an attraction as you can imagine. By the way, the exact address is Frond H, The Palm Jumeirah, Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Especially at night when a show is taking place, you can, of course, see it from afar and it looks very spectacular.
Now you probably ask yourself how you can reach The Palm Fountain at all. If you have booked a hotel on the island such as the Atlantis The Palm then you only need to go out to the balcony and you can marvel at the show from there. You certainly have one of the best locations to look at. But there are many other hotels there such as the Jumeirah Zabeel Saray, or the Waldorf Astoria Dubai Palm Jumeirah.
Dubai The Palm Fountain
There it is best to take a taxi to the promenade The Pointe Dubai. A journey from there takes no more than 10 to 15 minutes and then you are at the main entrance. By the way, free shuttle buses are also offered for tourists that can be used. In principle, The Palm Monorail passes there, but there is no stop directly there. You would then have to drive to the Atlantis Hotel. So right now the best thing to do is to take a taxi.
Then you should also find out when the shows are actually taking place. You have to know that these cannot be admired during the day. It may well be that it is a rehearsal then you can see something. But the regular showtimes of The Palm Fountain are always from 6:00 p.m. to 12:00 p.m. every day of the week. So the first show always takes place at 6:00 p.m. and then it is probably not that dark yet, so it is not that impressive.
It is best to wait until it is completely night and then you will be amazed. You will immediately unpack your smartphone or video camera to record what you are about to see. By the way, the shows always take place every 30 minutes and then comes the next one. Furthermore, a show always lasts about three minutes and all you have to do is walk to The Pointe promenade.
Since this is a very spectacular attraction, you might think that you have to pay admission. But as you are used to in Dubai you don’t have to pay anything at all. That means you can watch every show from 6:00 p.m. to 12:00 a.m. if you want. All you have to do is walk to The Pointe Dubai promenade and then enjoy the show. You can certainly imagine that these also cost a lot of money.

Furthermore, the upkeep and maintenance of The Palm Fountain naturally cost a lot. But since Dubai is one of the richest countries in the whole world, they are not dependent on this income. You should know that there are a lot of free Dubai attractions that of course attract visitors.
Now we come to the impressive facts and figures of The Palm Fountain. In any case, these are very spectacular. There are two different platforms where these can be seen on the water over an area of 14,000 square meters. Incidentally, the water fountains there shoot up to 105 meters in height. 3,000 LED lamps provide the lighting and there is also the right music. The combination is very impressive and if you’ve seen the show several times then it’s still very impressive.
The Palm Fountain is definitely worth a visit. Especially if you stay in a hotel on the island then you should always make sure that you get a room with a view. Furthermore, the promenade The Pointe Dubai is very interesting with numerous shops and restaurants where you can end the day. It has been done very impressively and there is a high probability that you will be very impressed. Our recommendation is to plan at least two to three hours there and in between, you can always watch the show.
